What causes Inflammation in the Body | Acute & Chronic
What is Inflammation in the Body?
Inflammation is the response of our body’s immune system. Inflammation is the immediate response of the body, when we affected with wounds. It heal the wounds in our body by the immune system. In general, Inflammation will start to work against for our body which is the causes of inflammation diseases.
What causes of inflammation in the body:
1. Imbalanced food, food allergies can lead to too much bacteria production in the intestine. If Gut bacteria is not enough to fight bad bacteria in the gastrointestinal intestine will cause inflammation. Some foods that cause inflammation should be avoided
2. Inflammation in the knee caused by the over strain of the knee including excess of exercise or cycling.
3. Inflammation in the cartilage, degeneration of the joint, arthritis, gout will cause inflammation in the joints.
4. Sports injury or imbalanced movement of joint may cause joint pain problems while moving and causes of inflammation in arthritis
5. Eating more proteins rich foods may worse arthritis issue. It will covert as antigens in the body start to attack as inflammation settled in the joint and cause of inflammation in the body.
Types of inflammation in the body:
Inflammation can be divided into two types,
1. Acute Inflammation
2. Chronic Inflammation
Causes of chronic and acute inflammation:
Acute inflammation in the body:
Acute inflammation is the short time inflammation occurs in our body for 1 to 2 weeks only. It is the initial response to infection, virus, bacteria accumulated in the body is called acute inflammation. Natural anti-inflammatory like ginger is enough to treat acute inflammation. Acute inflammatory diseases are,
- Tonsillitis (Throat)
- Sinusitis (Nose)
- Physical injury
- Dermatitis (Skin)
Tonsillitis causes(Throat Inflammation):
Tonsillitis is bacterial or virus infection in the tonsils(Throat). Tonsils are the two pair of soft tissue nodes located in the back of the throat which is the part of immune system carry colourless fluid contains white blood cells towards the bloodstream. These tonsils are affected by the bacteria called Streptococcal bacteria in the throat causes inflammation in throat shows symptoms like painful swallowing, stiff neck, sore throat.
Sinusitis causes(Nose Inflammation) :
Sinusitis is an inflammation formed in the four nasal cavities(paranasal) which caused by the bacteria, infection, mucus formation, pollution, allergies, cold, growth of the tissue lining in the nose(nasal polyps). Haemophilus influenza and Streptococcus pneumoniae are the inflammation causing bacteria in around the nose.
Sore throat causes:
Sore throat is the bacteria infection in the throat mostly after the cold or a cough. Sore throat is affected by the Streptococcal bacteria which causes pain, swelling of throat tissue. Sore throat is also common inflammation in the throat after a cold but it may persist if tonsil tissues are inflamed.
Physical injury in the body causes inflammation because of the arteries dilate the blood vessels, white blood cells settled in between the cells due to capillaries permeable, increase blood flow to the injured area. The accumulation of white blood cells after swallowed the bacteria that cause inflammation in the area.
Dermatitis causes(Skin Inflammation):
Dermatitis is a skin infection due to the exposure to sunlight (UV) rays, contact with bacteria causes’ skin itchiness, redness, swelling of the skin. After bacterial infection affected by the skin, bacteria tend to produce inflammatory producing chemicals which creates inflammation in the skin.
Causes of Chronic inflammation in the body:
Chronic inflammation is the extension of acute inflammation over 1 month or 2 months because of the pathogens or bacteria formation existed in the body or confusion in the immune system function may response reverse to the body. In this condition, you have to consult your doctor for further treatment. Chronic inflammatory diseases are,
- Rheumatoid arthritis causes and symptoms
- Stomach inflammation causes
- Periodontitis inflammation
- Tuberculosis Inflammation causes
Rheumatoid arthritis is an infection affected in the joints causing swelling, pain, warmth, immobility, thickened the tissues in the joints, these are inflammatory arthritis symptoms. Chemical cytokines are produced in the joints makes the swelling and improper function of immune system is the reason of inflammation occurred. Glucosamine and ginger are the effective herbs for inflammation
Stomach inflammation causes(Peptic ulcer):
The peptic ulcer is the bacteria infection in the stomach lining tissues which causes swelling and blockage of digestive tract makes the hole in the digestive tract. Vomiting, nausea, upper abdominal pains are the symptoms of peptic ulcer. Peptic ulcer is caused by the bacteria called Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) which are the causes of stomach or intestinal inflammation.
Periodontitis inflammation Causes(Teeth Inflammation):
Periodontitis is the inflammation spread in the teeth, If bacteria or germs be left for a long time in between the teeth. It caused by the periodontal bacteria which is normally present in the teeth it affects only the count of bacteria increased which shows the symptoms are gum bleeding while brushing or eating and pain.
Tuberculosis Inflammation causes(Lungs):
Tuberculosis is the infection in the tissues of lungs causes inflammation. Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) is increased the inflammation pathogens spread through the air particles called droplet nuclei (5-10 microns), this is generating in the person who affected by tuberculosis.
Liver Cancer causes(Hepatitis B) :
Abnormal immune system response or the long time sustainability of inflammation in the body leads to cancer, this is because chronic inflammation can damage the DNA tends to cancer. For example, chronic inflammation diseases like hepatitis lead to liver cancer, bowel disease leads to stomach cancer.
